Hey, the new Knitty
is up – and I am so excited to have another pattern published in it. I love the pics my husband took, if I may say so, don’t you?
As you can see, I have not been lazy in the meantime. This scarf is my latest design and the pattern can be purchased from KnitwitchesYarns
The main body uses an old French lace, unsurpassable for its openness and delicacy. With these qualities it was the perfect match for Knitwitches pure silk yarn, whose softness and lightness are just a pleasure to knit and wear. The pattern itself is not difficult to knit, but requires your attention. I have thought a long time about the edging and finally chose a crochet edging as the crochet pattern takes up the triangles and shell-shape of the pattern and adds additional femininity to the scarf.
The finished scarf with its squares, circles and triangles reminded me of the Bloomsbury group who lived in squares and wrote in circles and produced some of the best novels in English literature.
If you do not want to crochet on the edging, instructions are given for an alternative knit edging. A second alternative instructs you how to make a stole.
